Bottle as an extra from Homer321. Big thanks! Pours pitch black with essentially no head at all. Dense as can be. Aroma of big roast, smoke, oak, rye whiskey, spicy grain, chocolate, anise. Very nice. The flavor is very chocolatey roast, spicy rye, whiskey and oak barrel notes, sweet lingering milk chocolate on the palate. Medium plus bodied with light pleasant carbonation. An interesting brew that was not on my radar but am very happy to have the chance to try. A nice way to cap off the night.

Pours black with a medium-sized blanket of light brown foam. Good head retention. Lots of fine bubbles cling together in clumps as I work my way through the glass. The aroma has a lot of chocolatey malt with a healthy dose of rye spice and some nice though mild barrel characteristics. I'm also getting some coffee, blackberries, dates and blueberries. The barrel-aging contributes a sweet, vanilla rye flavor. It's very toned down, which I generally like. Taste-wise, it's sweet and rich. Lots of fruit and chocolate. More rye spice. Light oak with that pleasant vanilla-forward spirit flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and fairly thick. Another solid beer from Tyranena, though I still prefer Devil Made Me Do It by a bit.
